We know that relationships are so much more than just two halves coming together as some might say... 

The real beauty is when two people choose each other and a brand new song is first heard. This special moment is what we never get tired of celebrating.

We are Anaru & Pia

Mr. & Mrs. Church, best friends, lovers of love and suckers for simple & deep moments

Songbirds represent two souls, with different make ups, choosing to become one and sing with each other forever. That's a pretty good metaphor for what we love to do!

We work together, always, to capture weddings, engagement and elopements all over New Zealand & anywhere that love calls. 

FUN FACTS

Anaru is Maori and Pia is Mexican!

 

We first met when Anaru was 15 and Pia was 18 at church! We then crossed paths again 6 years later at the same place.

We got married in November 30th 2019, 3 months after Anaru proposed

For our wedding, we hired an AirBnB in Raglan, NZ for our wedding venue. We invited all our friends for the weekend and celebrated under a huge outdoor fairy light ceiling.

Anaru is a professional musician and has sung many brides down the aisle.

Pia is a black belt in TaeKwonDo and is a New Zealand national champion.

Anaru was originally a builder by trade but he took a leap of faith into the creative world of photography. He still builds handy things from time to time.

Pia has a secret passion for aviation and is working towards getting her Pilot's Licence.

Our favourite pastimes include hunting down good coffee, watching movies, playing board games, hiking, road-tripping and any grand excuse to meet new people. 

We have a gizzilion things we want to do in our lives, including becoming a barber and florist and opening up a shop, owning an ice cream van and touring New Zealand, being a musical traveling duo, creating new businesses, start a family, capture a thousand weddings and who knows what else!

Our biggest goal in life is to become love.
